CSound is now on Android. You can find it on the Google Play Store.
Here’s what you need to know …
Csound is an open source user-programmable software sound synthesizer of great power, originally created by Barry Vercoe at MIT in 1984. Users write instrument definitions in Csound’s orchestra language to render notes written in Csound’s score language, played on a MIDI controller, or generated within the orchestra or by some other programming language.
Csound contains a full complement of digital oscillators, samplers, filters, envelope generators, random number generators, physical models, sound granulators, phase vocoders, and other unit generators contributed for over 30 years by a community of musicians, programmers, and researchers from around the world.
The app was originally written by Victor Lazzarini and Steven Yi, and has been extended and is currently maintained by Michael Gogins.
This release runs only on Android 5.0 or later.

I’m sure most of you will know SunVox and be aware of just how awesome it is and has become. But I expect that few people will be aware of how long it has been around and how it evolved. I actually remember using SunVox on an old Palm OS Treo 650. It was awesome even then. Just look at how far it has come since it started.
But this begs a few questions. Just how is it that such a complex piece of software has been made so widely cross-platform and grown so much with the vision of just one person. Ok, one really amazing person, but there is only one NightRadio,
Well here you can find all of the screen shots of SunVox, the complete history, and long may it continue to get better and better.
